All Quilts all the time, equals, one great weekend!
Join the Alliance for American Quilts for three exciting events for quilters in the Big Apple this Summer.
If you couldn't travel to New York for the Infinite Variety quilt exhibition in March or if you just didn't get enough time in the Big Apple, now you have a second chance. Join the Alliance on August 5-6 for a fabulous weekend of quilts, fabric and fashion. To showcase their dynamic programs, and help pay for them too, the Alliance has put together a fun collection of three related but separate events including "Marianne & Jay on the Runway," to be held at F.I.T., "Modern Stories," a live interview and panel discussion about the Modern Quilt Movement, and "NY's Ultimate Block Party: Cocktails at The City Quilter," a chance to meet and greet quilt world A-listers and see an exhibition of incredible Noriko Endo quilts. Click here for full details and online ticket sales. Tickets are sold a la carte, so people can tailor a program to their own tastes and budgets. When you register for one or more events, the Alliance will link you to loads of supplemental information to help you put together an unforgettable quilters' weekend in New York. Join us!
The Alliance has many great program/projects for Quilters...
The Quilt Index: and online registry of quilt information/reference
Boxes Under the Bed ™ is a national project to identify and rescue quilt-related items in need of preservation, such as letters, clippings, and patterns.
The Quilt Treasures Project is documenting the stories of a limited number of notable individuals - quilt makers, designers, business people, collectors, scholars, publishers - who were instrumental in moving the 20th century quilt revival forward in some significant way.
and the Q.S.O.S. project...
If you think you will be in the New York
area in August, please come join in the fun!
I'd love to say hi!
